Welcome to the celebration of our 30th episode! Unfortunately, it was recorded with a gun to our heads A freeze gun, no less, which was a real bummer. And completely unnecessary since we would have been happy to review Batman & Mr. Freeze: Sub Zero, the second Batman Animated Series universe film! We love this world so much we dove in and also reviewed Heart of Ice, the first Batman Animated Series episode featuring a new and improved Mr. Freeze. Join us as we travel to 90's Gotham, where...

The origins of the Marvel film renaissance were simultaneously humble and bold. After X-Men (Snark Knights #18!), join us as we cover the other catalyst for the modern superhero film era: Sam Raimi's Willem Dafoe! Err, Spider-Man! Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. Starring Willem Dafoe. This movie has aged really well thanks to a great cast, sharp story, and lots of charm. It has a legacy that is still seen in today's Spider-Man films. And the legacy of J.K. Simmons utterly owning, in perpetuity, the...

The Snark Knights are coming in hot with "Superman Returns" in our 28th episode! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a sequel to Richard Donner’s Superman? Who knows, because this film can’t seem to make up its mind about what it's supposed to be and mostly exists as fan service. Travel back in time with us to when newspapers were still a thing and those same papers had yet to inform us how terrible some of the people involved in this movie are. Watch as the Man of Steel behaves...

Before the MCU... before Spider-Man... but after Howard the Duck... there was Blade! And we are as blessed to have it in our lives as we are to be discussing it in our latest episode. So grab your finest leather duster and strap in as we dig into this masterpiece of style and substance that changed the landscape comic book movies almost as much as Superman did 20 years prior. Normally we poke fun at the movies in these descriptions, even the ones we like. But we love Blade so much that we even...

In 2016, "Deadpool" defied expectations when it came out in the traditionally dumping ground of a February theatrical release, along with a low budget and R rating. But aside from breaking box office records, it was a breath of fresh air in a world dominated by safe, family friendly superhero fare.  And now the Snark Knights are here to snark it all, no matter how much we enjoyed this movie. We dissect just how they managed to make a fun superhero movie that featured surprising...

From the studio that brought us "Ninja III: The Domination" and "Hard Rock Zombies" comes "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace!" Just 1 of 34 films the Cannon Group released in 1987! Join the Snark Knights as we discuss a Superman movie so bad that we didn't get another film featuring the most iconic superhero of all time for nearly two decades. Despite tackling heavy themes like nuclear war and human nature, "Superman IV" stumbles at almost every turn...

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were a global phenomenon... that only 1 of us was old enough to experience. And after 3 years of dominating air waves and toy stores, the turtles branched out into motion pictures and dominated the big screen. Join the Snark Knights in our first discussion of a movie geared specifically to children despite a grim'n'gritty ending. So join us for Jim Henson appreciation, costume analysis, and deep dives into each turtles' psyche as we dive into the sewers of...

Christmas came early and the Snark Knights got to end 2018 by watching one of 2017's weirdest and most fun entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and comic book movies in general. Thor: Ragnarok! It's wild, it's colorful, and there's plenty to talk about. Asgardian family dynamics? Yup. Evolving character motivations? Uh-huh. Rebooting a franchise while ending a trilogy? You betcha. Luke's teenage fantasies? Uh... yes, actually. So what does the 3rd Thor film and 5th outing for the God of...

The good news is, the Snark Knights are back after a nice little hiatus. The bad news is, we're coming back with "The Crow: City of Angels." A movie so bad it killed a theatrical franchise. A movie so draining that we almost quit halfway through watching it and gave it the first "do not watch" we have issued in 22 episodes of this endeavor.  We truly cannot say enough to warn you not to watch this movie. In fact, dare we say, the only safe way to consume this 80 minute...

Welcome to our 21st episode! And folks, have we got an episode for you as we head into a little hiatus. We take a look at Iron Man 2 which is more or less Everything Works Out for Rich-White-Sexist-Asshole: The Movie! But there are some silver linings in the first sequel of the MCU and we do our best to find them. National treasures Don Cheadle and Sam Rockwell help a lot. This movie is only eight years old but it feels like a relic from another era. While it may not meet modern standards, Iron...

So join the Snark Knights as we discuss 1994's "The Shadow," a modern adaptation of a non-traditional comic hero from the days of radio and pulp novels. The Shadow has the power to cloud weak minds and convince people that his movie is better than it really is! Watch as our hero protects New York during that pleasant stretch between the...

In our first episode, we talked about 1978's "Superman," which created the superhero origin story and elevated the DC icon to a human ideal that we should all aspire to. In this episode, we talked about 1984's "Supergirl," which... does not do that. Appropriately for the midst of the 1980's, this movie plays out like a tacky fever dream, including two powerful women who just drop everything to fight over a man, odd coincidences that make plot convenience seem like...

It’s an X-Men origin movie… AGAIN! The Snark Knights discuss one of the founding films of the modern superhero movie era and learned some important lessons from 18 years ago that are still painfully relevant today. It's hard to be a smart woman surrounded by dumb men. Wolverine proves that if you try too hard to be a bad boy, you end up being a bad man. And of course, we learn what happens to a toad when it’s struck by lightning.    "X-Men" was the template for a lot of the...

Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone! And speaking of labor, the Snark Knights had to watch "Spider-Man 3" for this episode. If you think that joke was forced, just wait until you relive this movie with us! We break the whole thing down for you as best we can from producer interference to character inconsistencies, and everything in-between! Can this movie redeem a man who punches a dog? Is the infamous Emo Peter plot actually well-executed? Already having dark flashbacks of Spider-Man 3...

A year before Iron Man revolutionized comic book cinema, we got the absolute pinnacle of pre-MCU formulaic comic book movie with Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer! Toxic masculinity, low maintenance jokes, a mustache twirling villain, and everything else that comes with a phoned-in cash grab that... frankly, is kinda fun. But is it good enough to qualify as a guilty pleasure? Join us as we sift through this scatter-brained sequel to find out!

In 1962, the world was on the brink of Nuclear Armageddon as tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union were at their highest. But at the zero hour, Earth is saved by... the X-Men! Mutants! Men and women blessed with amazing abilities like energy chest! Chameleon-ing! Loud noises! Nude shape-shifting! Diamond shape-shifting! To be fair, there are lots of cool mutants that just weren't born by 1962 so we won't see them in this movie. This movie served as both soft reboot and savior...

The Knights of Snark take on the God of Thunder (and lightning?)! It's like Shakespeare with all of the glorious mythology, fighting, and magic that isn't really magic! Well, it's not really like Shakespeare aside from some of the ye olde English Asgardian talk. The Thor movie about Thor that introduced Thor into the MCU is one part boring political intrigue, one part no chemistry romance, one part fish out of water story, and one part realizing that Thor is kind of a jerk, but it all adds up...

The Snark Knights take on the law! Because that's what Judge Dredd is. The law. Come with us on a journey up 200 stories of awesome justice, as Karl Urban works his glorious, bottom-half-of-the-face magic. But his perma-scowl is just one of many charms throughout this (at least according to us) wildly underrated adaptation of what the UK thinks our cops will be like in the future. Also, Snark Knight Luke tries to follow in Snark Knight Jihan's footsteps to class up the episode. But will he...

Right on the heels of a very special 10th episode comes yet another very special episode!   Don’t worry, you’ll figure out why pretty quick. In any case, join us as we talk about 2004’s "The Punisher," a DCEU-level dour movie about a vengeful murder-bot.   It’s pretty hard to grind humor out of it, but we'll do our damnedest. And we don’t even mention the lack of social responsibility in it's glorification of violence (not that we mind the awesome brutality). But we do get...

In 1972, a young filmmaker named Wes Craven shocked the world with his brutal cinematic debut "The Last House on the Left." Then for his 10 year anniversary as a director he brought us… [checks notes] "Swamp Thing?" What the Hell?   That’s right! Only 9 episodes in, the Snark Knights are here to close out their first franchise of films. Surely in the hands of horror master Wes Craven, "Swamp Thing" will be better than the nihilism inducing, cheesy camp fest...
